I'm sure there are good reasons that the technology doesn't exist yet, but argument is that it's a foregone conclusion, so why not work on it now? The more autonomous vehicles come, and that's a foregone conclusion as well, the more the windscreen, windows, and back-light can be used as a landscape for entertainment (and it will).
I've only had 40 cars and only changed the front windshield 9 times.
